Brioche and Challah are not the same thing, though both are rich with egg, slightly sweet, and both make splendid French toast. The addition of butter in a Brioche adds a richness that is unmistakably and wonderfully French; while Challah is braided, glossy on top, both dense and light, and when not being featured in Jewish feasts, is a great addition to anyone's table.
As decorative as it is delicious, Easter Bread– with whole eggs baked into the sweet dough– is a tradition that shows up in many cultures. Ours is the Italian version called Pane di Pasqua, available in-store from April 20th–21st. Or reserve yours for pick up with our Bakery Manager.
